Barclays Center Cometh (Prospect Heights)

Mr. Rathner’s British bank named arena is now about 3.5 months from completion. Across the street, at a Modell’s sporting good store (also on the Atlantic Yards footprint), sits a giant inflated t-shirt welcoming the team (owned by a Russian billionaire) and introducing the latest logos and Adidas t-shirts already available at the “official sporting goods retailer of the Brooklyn Nets.” Never a supporter of this vast and ill-thought project, I can’t say I’m eager to see how traffic and life in Prospect Heights will change come opening night, which will feature Jay-Z, a part owner of the Nets.
